Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Stockholm, Sweden, and Madrid, Spain – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, radiation therapy leader Elekta (EKTA-B.ST), and oncology service provider Mercurius Health today announced the signing of a 3-year agreement under which Philips and Elekta will install state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic oncology equipment and associated informatics solutions at Mercurius Health’s newly-acquired Robert Janker Klinik cancer center in Bonn, Germany. The investment in Philips and Elekta solutions by Mercurius Health is part of its commitment to establishing a major presence in Germany, following the company’s acquisition of Robert Janker Klinik earlier this year.
The agreement has been enabled by the strategic partnership between Philips and Elekta to advance comprehensive personalized cancer care through the deployment of precision oncology solutions. The Robert Janker Klinik, a specialized hospital in oncology and palliative care, focuses on minimally invasive diagnostics and treatments for cancer. The hospital has three inpatient departments (radiology, radiotherapy and palliative care) and an outpatient unit for radiotherapy. It employs around 130 staff and treats patients from across the region as well as national and international patients.
“This major investment in cutting-edge technology by Mercurius Health means many of the projects currently in planning can be rapidly moved forward, making us a showcase for what the future of cancer care will look like,” said Prof. Dr. Attila Kovács, Head Physician of the Clinic for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and Neuroradiology.
